Conor Brady is trying to get his head around this thing which has been there since 1831 called the National School but there are plans to hand it over to the Taliban?

  1. if you read the word of Catholic Bishop James Doyle of Kildare to a Parliament committee in 1830’s a warning from history

    ” I do not see how any man wishing well to the public peace, and who looks to Ireland as his country, can think that peace can be permanently established, or the prosperity of the country ever well secured, if children are separated at the commencement of life on account of their religious opinions.”
    This is how he sees it from a political point of view. Separate schools would endanger the public peace, which is not yet permanent. The prosperity of the country also depends on keeping children together.
    Then he deals with the effect of separation on the children themselves.
    ” I do not know of any measures that would prepare the way for better feeling in Ireland than uniting children at an early age, and bringing them up in the same school, leading them to commune with one another and to form those little intimacies and friendships which subsist through life. Children thus united know and love each other as children brought up together always will and to separate them is I think, to destroy some of the finest feelings in the hearts of men.”
